Guest Photo Challenge: One by Lisa Dorenfest
I love uncovering underwater mysteries and celebrating sweeping landscapes from the quite of the mountains to the endless expanse of the sea. But my specialty is street photography; portraits, scenes and ‘moments’ that offer a brief glimpse into the lives of others, one image in a string of frames that compose their life movie.
When I am shooting the streets, the scenes that most capture my attention are those with only one subject. It is here that I find, if only for an instant, a direct connection with another. I am often drawn in by the feelings of solitude, separation or aloneness evoked by such an image. The use of black and white deepens that mood for me. And I enjoy the sense of wonder that can be created by the presence of unique individual, one who stands out remarkably.
Are you drawn to create images with one subject? How does ‘one’ manifest itself in your black and white photography?
